Recently, carry-ons and suitcases from the trendy luggage brand Away have started topping travel pros' lists of airport must-haves—and it's not hard to see why.

Considering all of the luxury details these suitcases offer (think, built-in phone chargers and laundry bags), these high-end suitcases are surprisingly affordable. Sure, the $225 carry-on is an investment piece, but when you consider how the durable construction and 360-degree swivel wheels will make navigating through the airport, hotel lobby, and city streets so much easier, this splurge is well-worth it. Ready to invest in a first-class carry-on? Check out Away's current pop-up collaboration in select Nordstrom stores and on, including three exclusive new color options. In bold primary colors, you'll be able to spot your luggage coming off the baggage carousel from a mile away.
